I thought you were originally shooting for this past October. My mistake.

Here's a little snippet of one of the pages of our own Powder's artwork, from a story by DrSpengler called "The Shogun," one of the (at the moment, two) backups in "Origin."

One part of me loves the lack of context (especially with Donatello) and the other is just excited to see how those three things fit together.

Sweet page!
At most a year between now and the release. I really can't wait.

Powder, can you tell us more about your technique?
Is it fully digital? Do you make the colors yourself?
Was DrSpengler very guiding in the storyboard?

Yep, fully digital. I use a Japanese art program called Paint Tool SAI. I sized my canvases to the same dimensions as Jim's pages, used a line tool to create panels based on how I think I can best make them fit, then sketching begins. I do very very loose doodles of the characters to get the general layouts & poses down, which I then run by Andrew/Mark to make sure everything looks alright, & once I get the OK, I begin to line them with a black pen setting. I do my own colors as well, yep! I bucket tool the flats as much as they allow, then on a separate multiply layer I draw out the cel-shading (which for the most part is a lot more detailed than on that particular page- which, by the way, is cropped), & additional layers feature effect lighting, for example I'll airbrush the glow of a computer screen or the glimmer in someone's eyes. Then I just save it as a PNG & shoot it over to the head honcho! Spengler gives just the right amount of guidance, IMO. Sets up the scene, setting, character expressions (& some of the body language/posing) but allows for enough creative freedom to give me some artistic expression. As an example, there is a page featuring Michelangelo's apartment, which I designed entirely on my own, so it was a lot of fun coming up with little Easter eggs or kitschy items to throw in there. In that one panel with the Utroms, there were just supposed to be a couple present in any capacity, nothing specific, so I had them examining some sort of alien relic simply because I felt like coloring a translucent stone.

Very interesting and I'm curious to see this page with Michelangelo room.
How many pages long is the back-up you draw?
